I had 6th grade lunch duty yesterday and I would day 60% of them had their cell phones out---playing games, social media, sites, watching you tube. So many of them were not eating, so they could focus on their phone instead. There were two other teachers walking around, so it wasn't like, "Oh there's a sub---get your phone out!"

Are they allowed to use phones at lunch?

If so, I don't see a problem.

Many of our middle schoolers don't eat. Not sure why. I'll take food over socialization any day.

I'm happy to say there are no phones allowed in elementary or middle school and I love it! Sometimes a junior high student will ask if they can check something on their phone and I say, "No!"

I was surprised they ARE allowed at lunch at that middle school. My daughter is in middle school (a different school) and I asked her if they're allowed at lunch and she said only 8th graders are allowed to have them at lunch.

On the flip side, I did see one boy not eating his lunch either----because----he was completely engrossed in......A......BOOK!!!!
